Peace builders have to be willing to get vulnerable in their marketing.
In a professional field, dominated by people familiar—and comfortable—with the way that influence, quality, and communication, worked under Industrial Revolution rules, this can be a difficult process to emabark upon.
Peace builders of all kinds—conflict resolution professionals, coaches, mediators, facilitators, attorneys, social workers, and on and on—are facing world where their permission to market to an audience is no longer granted at mass, and where technology gives anyone—including potential clients—the tools to change the rules.
It is important to note however, that perfection, exactitude, and quality are considered differently now than they were in the past that many peace builders were trained in. A peace builder at a conference where I was presenting about marketing for peace builders, asked me a question directly related to concerns around quality in marketing and content creation:
“How can you write a blog post that’s ‘just good enough’ when that is out there and it could show the quality of your work to a potential client?”
The answer to it is three fold:
But before doing any of this, before writing one blog post, or making one video, peace builders have to be willing to throw away professional fear, the need for reassurances, their preconceived expectations of what the market will look at as quality, and dance courageously with vulnerability to market effectively.
It can be hard as a peace builder to get vulnerable without some sort of guide.
But I’ve written a book describing best practices, skills, and techniques that I’ve used to get vulnerable in my marketing and to attract paying clients for peace.
